Colts losing early, again

AP

Since beating Peyton Manning and the Broncos, something has happened to the Colts.

With the Titans racing to a 14-0 lead in Nashville on Thursday night, the Colts have now been outscored 63-3 in the first halves of their last three games.

It started in Houston 11 nights ago, with the Texans leading 21-3 at intermission.  (And but for the disarray caused by Gary Kubiak’s collapse, the Colts likely would have lost.)  Last week, the Rams rolled the Colts, with a 28-0 halftime lead that became a 38-8 final score.

The problems are many and the Colts are in danger of having a season of so much promise implode.  They still have to play at Arizona, at Cincinnati, and at Kansas City, and the Titans come to town in 17 days for a rematch of what for now looks like a Tennessee win.

  1. NFLN Thursday night football.
    Ryan Fitzpatrick dives forward (head-first) with no contact and upon hitting the ground, fumbles the football. (RG3 did the same thing and it resulted in a fumble / subsequent turnover). Of course in this titans case, on Thursday night football, no official ‘sees’ pagano’s challenge flag and a couple of plays later, Fitzpatrick slides, feet first.
    Just saying NFLN has every interest in making sure *wink* that the home crowd walks away happily. It may even boost subscriptions next year.

  2. Hey Mike, I can tell you what happened to them after that Denver game.

    Their best player blew his knee.

  3. Another crap Thursday night game. Its useless to have these games except the last month of the season.

  4. One of the officials was standing right there by those players coming off which makes it worse. I thought Fitz fumbled as well, but Pagano did wait until last second to challenge.

    The worst thing was the Colts LB head butting Walker without his helmet. To me that should have been an ejection and without a doubt a 1 game suspension. That was horrible.

  5. Ever since Reggie Wayne went down, this team has been a shell of its former self. They should’ve signed a solid veteran to help lift the burden off of Luck & these young, inexperienced WRs. Hell T.O. is still better than anybody on their roster not named T.Y. HILTON!!!

    Andrew Lucky barely not throwing picks again. Some of those button hook plays coulda been snatched right out of the receiver’s hands.

    It’s okay skinsfan, I’d be jealous of having Luck too if I were stuck with Robert Griffin the Turd.

  7. 1. Reggie Wayne makes qbs look better than they are.

    2. We need to get rid of the replacement refs and the regulars back in. Then we wouldn’t have these officiating errors.

  8. One of the overlooked aspects of all of the 4th quarter comebacks that Andrew Luck has been part of is that you have to be behind in the 4th quarter in order to comeback. I don’t know, maybe he’s just setting us up for that comeback, but were I a Colts fan, I’d be okay with leading games right from the start.

  9. Via Epsn stats and info.

    Andrew Luck is 1-for-4 on throws more than 10 yards downfield, 9-for-27 on those throws in last 3 games (46% completion pct in first 8 gms)

  10. Colts fan here and I had to curb my enthusiasm after seeing the pathetic offensive display in the loss to the Dolphins back in September. And was WITH Reggie Wayne. I’m sick of hearing all the Reggie Wayne excuses – most every team has injuries to key players at this point in the season. Deal with it!

    Colts will still win this game though….

  11. And the Steelers are the most boring team in the league. I’ll take overrated and winning record over boring and terrible.

  12. For as good as everyone is saying the Colts and Seahawks are, they are having lots of points being hung on them by some pretty poor teams (St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Houston, Tennessee). That’s why I suspect neither Andrew Luck nor Russell Wilson will be attending the Super Bowl as anything other than guests, since both Seattle and Indy are going to start running out of teams that magically vanish at halftime.

  13. Colts pick ups of the year….. Laron I take terrible angles Landry, Trent I won’t average more than 2 yes/carry Richardson, and Ryan I have no idea what I am doing Grigson. Laughable.
